These days I always read Slashdot on my cellphone when I get up in the morning, just to get my system started. But on and around April 1st it’s simply no use. There are only so many "featured stories" you can take without getting tired. I got to work and remembered that I hadn’t remembered to make a spoof for Sigg3.net. So I threw together a quick and dirty April Fool’s joke that at least one (1) person actually fell for. Lady C, I’m looking at you. If you missed out, this is what it looked like:
Just as last year, the Sigg3.net spoof is featured on aprilfoolsdayontheweb.com so please go ahead and vote +1 or suffer the consequences. Which is not voting +1.. Then come back here and tell us how you were fooled, if at all, this year.
Don’t forget to check out Koew’s excellent joke! Can’t believe that anyone would fell for K03WI-54N1C-3F311-0W4ND-W310V-3H1MM as a registration key..
Hilarious story there, by the way. One of Lady C’s colleagues recently (March 31st) became single when her boyfriend for the last 6 years called her from London to break up with her. Then she chose to update her Facebook profile with these news on April 1st. She had a hard time answering all the "ROTFL!" messages through the stream of tears.. Talk about stupid. And before you shoot me down, she’d been sleeping around. Double punch!
